I`m a newbie. Never tried any Acronis products, but i need a good backup-software that works. My intention is to burn images to DVD. A couple of weeks ago I thought TI9 would be the right deal, but I`m not so sure after reading about all the problems. Has anyone succeeded burning images to DVD, and restoring without any problems? Please let me know. Please tell me why I should use TI. Do I have any choice? I have heard about Norton Ghost, but don`t know if it is any better (I don`t thrust Norton products). The free DriveImage XML http://www.runtime.org/dixml.htm looks like a good alternative, but I do not know too much about it. Any experience with this or other? Anyway I start with downloading the TI9 Userguide to see if I get any smarter. Thanks.
